Bibelen på hverdagsdansk

1. Mosebog 36:1-43

Esaus slægt

1Det følgende er Esaus historie, han som også blev kaldt Edom:

2Esau giftede sig med to kana’anæiske piger: Ada, en datter af hittitten Elon, og Oholibama, en datter af Ana og barnebarn af hivvitten Zibon. 3Han giftede sig også med sin kusine Basemat, en datter af Ishmael og søster til Nebajot. 4Esau og Ada fik en søn, der blev kaldt Elifaz. Esau og Basemat fik en søn, der blev kaldt Reuel. 5Esau og Oholibama fik tre sønner, der fik navnene Jeush, Jalam og Kora. Alle disse sønner blev født i Kana’ans land.

6Senere tog Esau sine koner, sine sønner, sine døtre, hele sin husstand og besætning og alt, hvad han havde samlet sig i Kana’ans land, og flyttede til et andet land af frygt for sin bror Jakob. 7Deres husdyr var jo også blevet alt for mange til, at de som fremmede kunne bo samme sted som de fastboende. Der var slet ikke græs nok. 8Esau slog sig derfor ned i Seirs bjergland.

9Her følger en liste over Esaus efterkommere, edomitterne, som bor i Seirs bjergland:

10-13Ada fødte som sagt Esau en søn, der fik navnet Elifaz, og han fik fem sønner: Teman, Omar, Zefo, Gatam og Kenaz. Elifaz havde også en kone, som hed Timna, og med hende fik han sønnen Amalek.

Esau og hans kone Basemat fik sønnen Reuel, og han fik fire sønner: Nahat, Zerach, Shamma og Mizza.

14Esaus kone Oholibama, en datter af Zibons søn Ana, fødte tre sønner: Jeush, Jalam og Kora.

15-16Esaus sønner og sønnesønner blev stamfædre for de forskellige stammer blandt Edoms folk. De stammer, der er kendt under navnene Teman, Omar, Zefo, Kenaz, Kora, Gatam og Amalek, nedstammer alle fra Elifaz, Esaus og Adas ældste søn.

17De stammer, der er kendt under navnene Nahat, Zerach, Shamma og Mizza, nedstammer alle fra Reuel, Esaus og Basemats søn.

18-19Desuden er der stammerne Jeush, Jalam og Kora, opkaldt efter de sønner, som Esau fik med sin kone Oholibama, Anas datter.

Edoms oprindelige indbyggere

20-21Her følger en liste med navnene på de stammer, som oprindeligt boede i Seirs land: Lotan, Shobal, Zibon, Ana, Dishon, Etzer og Dishan. De er efterkommere af og har navn efter horitten Seirs sønner.

22Lotan, Seirs søn, havde følgende sønner: Hori og Hemam. Lotan havde også en søster ved navn Timna.

23Shobals sønner hed Alvan, Manahat, Ebal, Shefo og Onam.

24Zibons sønner hed Ajja og Ana. Det var Ana, som opdagede en varm kilde i ørkenen, dengang han vogtede sin fars æsler. 25Anas børn var sønnen Dishon og datteren Oholibama. 26Dishons sønner hed Hemdan, Eshban, Jitran og Keran.

27Etzers sønner hed Bilhan, Za’avan og Akan.

28Dishans sønner hed Utz og Aran.

29-30Horitternes stammer i Seirs land hed altså: Lotan, Shobal, Zibon, Ana, Dishon, Etzer og Dishan.

De oprindelige konger i Seirs land

31-39Endnu før der var konger i Israel, herskede følgende konger i det, der nu hedder Edom: Først Bela, Beors søn, fra byen Dinhaba. Da han døde, efterfulgtes han af Jobab, Zerachs søn fra Botzra. Da Jobab døde, efterfulgtes han af Husham fra temanitternes område. Da Husham døde, blev Hadad konge. Han var søn af Bedad og kom fra byen Avit. Det var ham, der besejrede midjanitternes hær i Moabs land. Da Hadad døde, blev Samla fra Masreka konge. Da han døde, blev Shaul fra flodbyen Rehobot konge. Da han døde, blev Ba’al-Hanan, Ahbors søn, konge. Da han døde, blev Hadar fra Pau konge. Hans kone hed Mehetabel og var datter af Matred, som igen var datter af Mezahab.

40Slægtsoverhovederne i Esaus slægt hed Timna, Alva, Jetet, 41Oholibama, Ela, Pinon, 42Kenaz, Teman, Mibzar, 43Magdiel og Iram. Det område, som hver enkelt slægt boede i, overtog efterhånden slægtens navn.

Genesis 36:1-43

Esau’s descendants

1This is the account of the family line of Esau (that is, Edom).

2Esau took his wives from the women of Canaan: Adah daughter of Elon the Hittite, and Oholibamah daughter of Anah and granddaughter of Zibeon the Hivite – 3also Basemath daughter of Ishmael and sister of Nebaioth.

4Adah bore Eliphaz to Esau, Basemath bore Reuel, 5and Oholibamah bore Jeush, Jalam and Korah. These were the sons of Esau, who were born to him in Canaan.

6Esau took his wives and sons and daughters and all the members of his household, as well as his livestock and all his other animals and all the goods he had acquired in Canaan, and moved to a land some distance from his brother Jacob. 7Their possessions were too great for them to remain together; the land where they were staying could not support them both because of their livestock. 8So Esau (that is, Edom) settled in the hill country of Seir.

9This is the account of the family line of Esau the father of the Edomites in the hill country of Seir.

10These are the names of Esau’s sons:

Eliphaz, the son of Esau’s wife Adah, and Reuel, the son of Esau’s wife Basemath.

11The sons of Eliphaz:

Teman, Omar, Zepho, Gatam and Kenaz. 12Esau’s son Eliphaz also had a concubine named Timna, who bore him Amalek. These were grandsons of Esau’s wife Adah.

13The sons of Reuel:

Nahath, Zerah, Shammah and Mizzah. These were grandsons of Esau’s wife Basemath.

14The sons of Esau’s wife Oholibamah daughter of Anah and granddaughter of Zibeon, whom she bore to Esau:

Jeush, Jalam and Korah.

15These were the chiefs among Esau’s descendants:

The sons of Eliphaz the firstborn of Esau:

Chiefs Teman, Omar, Zepho, Kenaz, 16Korah,36:16 Masoretic Text; Samaritan Pentateuch (also verse 11 and 1 Chron. 1:36) does not have Korah. Gatam and Amalek. These were the chiefs descended from Eliphaz in Edom; they were grandsons of Adah.

17The sons of Esau’s son Reuel:

Chiefs Nahath, Zerah, Shammah and Mizzah. These were the chiefs descended from Reuel in Edom; they were grandsons of Esau’s wife Basemath.

18The sons of Esau’s wife Oholibamah:

Chiefs Jeush, Jalam and Korah. These were the chiefs descended from Esau’s wife Oholibamah daughter of Anah.

19These were the sons of Esau (that is, Edom), and these were their chiefs.

20These were the sons of Seir the Horite, who were living in the region:

Lotan, Shobal, Zibeon, Anah, 21Dishon, Ezer and Dishan. These sons of Seir in Edom were Horite chiefs.

22The sons of Lotan:

Hori and Homam.36:22 Hebrew Hemam, a variant of Homam (see 1 Chron. 1:39) Timna was Lotan’s sister.

23The sons of Shobal:

Alvan, Manahath, Ebal, Shepho and Onam.

24The sons of Zibeon:

Aiah and Anah. (This is the Anah who discovered the hot springs36:24 Vulgate; Syriac discovered water; the meaning of the Hebrew for this word is uncertain. in the desert while he was grazing the donkeys of his father Zibeon.)

25The children of Anah:

Dishon and Oholibamah daughter of Anah.

26The sons of Dishon36:26 Hebrew Dishan, a variant of Dishon:

Hemdan, Eshban, Ithran and Keran.

27The sons of Ezer:

Bilhan, Zaavan and Akan.

28The sons of Dishan:

Uz and Aran.

29These were the Horite chiefs:

Lotan, Shobal, Zibeon, Anah, 30Dishon, Ezer and Dishan.

These were the Horite chiefs, according to their divisions, in the land of Seir.

The rulers of Edom

31These were the kings who reigned in Edom before any Israelite king reigned:

32Bela son of Beor became king of Edom. His city was named Dinhabah.

33When Bela died, Jobab son of Zerah from Bozrah succeeded him as king.

34When Jobab died, Husham from the land of the Temanites succeeded him as king.

35When Husham died, Hadad son of Bedad, who defeated Midian in the country of Moab, succeeded him as king. His city was named Avith.

36When Hadad died, Samlah from Masrekah succeeded him as king.

37When Samlah died, Shaul from Rehoboth on the river succeeded him as king.

38When Shaul died, Baal-Hanan son of Akbor succeeded him as king.

39When Baal-Hanan son of Akbor died, Hadad36:39 Many manuscripts of the Masoretic Text, Samaritan Pentateuch and Syriac (see also 1 Chron. 1:50); most manuscripts of the Masoretic Text Hadar succeeded him as king. His city was named Pau, and his wife’s name was Mehetabel daughter of Matred, the daughter of Me-Zahab.

40These were the chiefs descended from Esau, by name, according to their clans and regions:

Timna, Alvah, Jetheth,

41Oholibamah, Elah, Pinon,

42Kenaz, Teman, Mibzar,

43Magdiel and Iram.

These were the chiefs of Edom, according to their settlements in the land they occupied.

This is the family line of Esau, the father of the Edomites.
